I just want to give a shout out to NoteFlight’s excellent UX design. I’ve spent 2 days using the product and it is so easy and intuitive that it’s a no-brainer to sign up for upgrade. I’ve used several other popular competitor music-notation apps, and they have all been an expensive fistfight, omitting important features. Your product is the best I’ve seen in terms of essential functionality and ease-of-use.
I spent my career (since the 70’s) doing software architecture and design. The nature of software is that you develop something that fits a small, essential job, and then it keeps on getting extended, more complicated and more ‘brittle’ (vulnerable to breakage) over time. The more extended, the harder it is to use. Eg - MS-Word has been around for 20 years; Microsoft keeps tweaking it and adding arcane features nobody uses, and their product is pure bloatware now. Don’t do that, please!
So – thanks for the great work. And a word of caution: K.I.S.S.! Each time you add another non-essential feature, you make things more complicated for customers, and add hidden long-term support costs.
Thanks / Dave
